I'm imagining a cosy Christmas around the fire reading stories with the family. What stories can you think of that are suitable for young and old (not too babyish, but accessible enough for little ones). I'm wanting stories about ancient forests, wolves, magic, good and evil, feasts...you know the sort of thing. Maybe something that includes easy props/puppetry to help keep kids enthralled.
Greenmantle - The Wolves of Willoughby Chase was exactly what I had in mind when I started this thread, but I was wondering if there might be shorter stories that could be read in one or sittings? The kids are four and five (plus a one year old...but I'm not really including him ).
